I will never forget this quote of hers from roughly 20-25 yrs ago: "music kids listen to should make their parents throw up!"

Seriously.

WTF?! Now it's working in reverse?

To be honest, I always thought it was a really lame quote that like some of the things she said sounded "socially revolutionary" without being worth diddly do...

No, music should ALWAYS be GOOD, and though we have debated it endless hereabouts, fine details of what is good and bad can evolve, shift, etc., but I have always maintained that there is an underlying musical basis (ie, objective) for assessment of any period's music...

I throw up when I hear "We Built This City".

Does that mean my kids should like it?

I about came unglued when Grace Potter & The Nocturnals covered White Rabbit at FloydFest 8 a few weeks ago.

The chick has a set of pipes and boy can she use 'em. You could feel the strains of 'feed your head' booming down the field from the Main Stage.
